        Tips for finding the right wedding photographer

        Ask your potential photographers to see their wedding portfolio and their contracts.

        Compare the lighting, poses and scenes particularly their backgrounds. Backgrounds can make or break a photo.
        Check whether they will meet with you before the wedding day to discuss your requirements and whether this is included in the fee. It is included with my pricing.
        Are they using high end professional gear? It makes a difference to the skin tones. The gear I use is high quality and you will notice the beautiful skin tones and colour range. I also use a camera that will produce 45MB files which means you will be able to print at a very large size.
        Check if their fee includes the supply of high and low resolution images. Some charge more to download the images. My price for wedding photography includes the supply of all edited high and low resolution images.
        Check their editing skills. Do they photos look over-saturated? Have they bothered to edit them at all? This can be a concern for your photos as they will not look good if they are over-saturated or poorly edited. My international awards prove that I know how to edit to a high level and all wedding images are edited to look their absolute best.
        Do they charge extra for editing? All photos should be edited. It is rare that they can be handed over without some editing. My price includes all editing of all photos.


        Sam Nerrie can photograph weddings in any location of your choice on the far south coast of New South Wales including Merimbula, Bega, Tathra, Mallacoota, and Bermagui or in Canberra. Any other location will incur a travel charge. Contact Sam to discuss the photography of your forthcoming wedding.

        If you are holding your wedding outdoors on the beach or in a garden, use a specialist in outdoor weddings as the lighting requires more technical skills, especially in Australia.

        I have a special passion for wedding photography as it is a time when we are immersed in the experience of connecting with the bride, groom and their family members, their friend and their happy times. The experience is incredible and I love presenting them with a collection of images which portrays such a unique and exciting moment in their lives.

        It was so much fun working with you and the pictures look so great, thank you!
